and J., kythryne
and Amy and Miles (official mascot), rikibeth
, LJless Nick, slipjig
... I hope we have not forgotten anyone! All y'all were absolutely invaluable and amazing. If I dropped your name, it's exhaustion, not lack of appreciation.
U-Haul screwed us over at the last minute because of course they did, so we had a smaller truck, which meant two and a half loads. >.< But almost everything has made it over.
I have no idea how we had this many bookshelves in the old place, or where we're going to put them here; we have lots of space, but also we have big windows!

I go for now. Much to do!
